PacCoin VPS Masternode Guide
The wallet is the guide can be located at home or a separate secure server.
To set up Masternode.
We need to add the “Masternode Tab” in the $Pac wallet.
Go to Paccoin Core in upper left window of desktop
Click on Preferences
Click on wallet
Click “show Masternode tab”
Click OK and exit wallet and restart
Click on setting then options
Click OK and exit wallet and restart
Now to setup the wallet:
Please select Tools, Debug Console then console
Create a masternode genkey. Type in masternode genkey
The Masternode genkey will appear in the console. Copy and paste it to your notepad. Make sure to label it MN1 masternode genkey for masternode 1. Keep all of your information together we will use it later on, its also nice to have in case you need to move a vps later on down the line.
Next you will need to send 500,000 Pac coins to yourself (so you generate a Masternode TXID).
Click Receive on left menu on under $Pac Logo.
Type MN1 in label box.
Click request payment. Copy address.
Click Send on left menu on under $Pac Logo.
Paste request address you just created. Once pasted the Label should automatically say MN1 so you know the coins are going back to your wallet and not to someone else. For a precaution you can double check the first and last few characters on the send address and receive address.
Once you have 15 conformations (check by mousing over payment in transaction window) go back to debug window type: masternode outputs
in the console and press enter.
Copy the Masternode outputs to your notepad so we can correctly format it for later use.
The code you paste will look like
To format the Masternode outputs code remove non-alphanumeric characters (brackets and colon) so it looks like this: e4chhijdjjinshhjj65jdkkrjjrjjf7jjs8ejdjjkkdk 1
Make sure to keep the “space” at the end between long address and last number.
We will be using VULTR for the vps setup. They have a low cost and effective network. Signup at
www.vultr.com Register, verify email address, enter billing information. Now to select a server.
To deploy an new server click the big blue + button and it will bring you to the Deploy New Instance page.
1 Select a server location.
2 Select server type. Choose Ubuntu 16.04 x64
Do not use ipv6 ip (not compatible) use ipv4
7 Add Server host name (example MN1)
Click Deploy Now
Setup Masternode Script on Server.
Go to applications, Utilities open Terminal
Windows 7, 8, 10 download and install www.putty.org
Windows 10 Powershell (only works with windows 10)
Type in: ssh root@(your ip address) from server on Vultr then enter
An authentication screen may popup something like this (below) type: yes and press enter
The authenticity of host ‘your ip address ((your ip address) )’ can’t be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 9d:b4:e3:9f:84:cf:c7:2c:cc:9d:be:cb:f3:f2:7c:32.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
it will ask for password (use password provided in server information from Vultr) Password will be invisible. You can copy paste password in Terminal/Putty
Now to install script
then type: chmod +x pacmn.sh
then type: ./pacmn.sh
then enter wait…..
The script will prompt for external IP type in your ip address from Vultr then press enter,
then paste in the masterenode genkey that you copied earlier to your notepad and press enter.
Now go back to your wallet click Tools and open masternode configuration file. You can delete the examples if you choose.
type in as follows
as an example: MN1 your ip address from Vultr then :7112 (that is the port PAC uses, so it will look like this as an example): MN1 192.168.0.1:7112 then paste in your masternode key then paste in your formated version of the Masterenode outputs save and close window.
Exit and reopen wallet.
click “start alias” tab
click okay to start MN1.
Now everything should be up and running.
*For multiple masternodes repeat guide starting masternode genkey, make sure to use different name for second masternode such as MN2, MN3 and so forth.
*May take 5-10 minutes for status to change.
